Colombo - Sri Lanka's cash-strapped cricket board has appointed former International Cricket Council chief executive Haroon Lorgat as an advisor for three months, the board said on Tuesday.

South African Lorgat, 52, who quit the ICC in June after serving as CEO for four years, will assist in improving the "governance and administration" of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), a release from the board said.

"Lorgat has a wealth of knowledge and experience and we are delighted that he has agreed to work with us to improve the governance and administration of our cricket," SLC president Upali Dharmadasa said.

"Lorgat is a seasoned administrator and I am excited that with his expertise we can work towards building a strong and sustainable future for SLC."

The SLC is struggling to repay debts of around $70 million after building two new stadiums in Hambantota and Pallekele and renovating a third in Colombo for last year's World Cup.
